Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This study should prove useful to archaeologists interested in issues of ancient urbanism both for the site it describes and for the techniques it utilizes. Roman Empúries is a significant site not as well known outside Spain as it deserves to be. Evidence from the city can offer much to debates on Greek colonization, ethnicity of larger Roman settlements, and ideology in monumental architecture. The present work on the city, which flourished from the 6th century BC to the end of the 1st century AD, is the most extensive so far written in English.
